What You Will Learn


A mandolin has four sets of doubled metal strings that are tied in unison, which adds up to a total of eight strings. The set of strings are tuned to the same note. A set of double strings is also known as a course.

Standard mandolin tuning are the notes, G-G-D-D-A-A-E-E.

The purpose of the double string is for sound amplification. The double strings when played together give out greater vibrational energy compared to a single string, resulting in a louder, stronger sound.

For beginners just learning to play the mandolin, their fingertips are likely to be soft. When fretting a single note or a chord, the string will sink into the flesh of the fingers. When this happens, another part of the finger may be contacting another string. Over time, as players develop calluses, this occurrence becomes less likely, and the strings will not impact the fingers as they did when first playing.

Another reason for finger pain while playing is that the fingers are not angled properly as they contact the mandolin strings. If they are leaning over rather than straight up and down, they will touch an adjacent string.
